Ski honeymoons are undeniably romantic. At the end of a brisk day doing runs down the mountain, and riding up the chairlift arm in arm, you can take the time to warm up together. Picture hot cocoa by a fireplace at the end of a long day on the slopes, as well as spins around an ice rink, spa treatments for two before a snowy landscape, and even snow shoeing, cross country skiing, and horse-drawn carriage rides.
The Pitcher Inn, Warren, Vermont
This luxurious inn, located right near Sugarbush, is exactly what you imagine when you think about snowy romance. The building itself is a white clapboard mansion with plenty of porches and wood-burning fireplaces, and the eleven elegant rooms include some with playful themes, such as the whimsical stable and school house-inspired suites; pitcherinn.com.
The Little Nell, Aspen, Colorado
This 92-room ski-in, ski-out resort has a fabulous location right on the slopes at the gondola entrance. Plus, the après-ski people watching over cocktails is unforgettable. Our advice? Plan to dress up to you blend in; thelittlenell.com.
The Four Seasons, Jackson Hole, Wyoming
This decadent resort in the Grand Tetons is the lodge experience gone upscale. There’s plenty of rustic stone and wood, and you can end your day with grilled game and whisky cocktails served in little copper cups; fourseasons.com.
The Fairmont Chateau Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
This 550-room resort, which looks a bit like a castle in the mountains, has a ski-in, ski-out location at the base of two slopes. If you overdo it on the slopes, soak any aching muscles in the lodge’s indoor or outdoor hot tubs, or visit the steam room or sauna; fairmont.com.
The Lodge Park, Megève, France
If nothing but the Alps will do on this holiday, The Lodge Park has a kitschy antler-laden décor that is as witty as it is comfortable. After joining the European crowd on the slopes, toast to your union with a couple glasses of French wine; lodgepark.com
